I’m a sucker for a good steak.

Ribeye, sirloin, filet mignon — you name it, I eat it. Well, not just steak. I love ground beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. Anything with a lot of protein. 

My weekly grocery store run typically looks like picking up a few steaks and the most affordable logs of ground beef. Throw ‘em in the skillet, add some salt and pepper, and voilà! A delicious, high-protein meal.

But, it’s expensive. I notice my grocery bill is drastically higher when I get beef or chicken versus when I get mostly vegetarian items. While it’s maybe not “the best of the best,” I’d rather eat meat that I deem to be fairly healthy than cheaper, high-carb ingredients.

I’ve been aware of those online build-your-box subscription plans. But for one reason or another, whether it’s reading bad reviews about them online or their price just being too high, I’ve never subscribed.

One day I was scrolling Instagram and came across Good Chop, a new take on the subscription box. Good Chop is sourcing responsibly raised meat, works with family farms and independent ranchers who share concern for animal welfare and sustainable practices. They handle their animals compassionately and humanely, with sufficient space, shelter, water, and a diet free of antibiotics and added hormones. I don’t know about you, but I personally don’t want to eat things that have been treated with chemicals.

I just might be hooked...

All-Natural & All-American Meat and Seafood

Good Chop was started to bring American meat to your doorstep super conveniently.

Unlike a few of the other subscription services I’ve seen, Good Chop exclusively sources its meat and seafood in America – and that’s a pretty big deal. Unfortunately, the meat you see labeled as “Product of the U.S.A.” can actually be raised abroad as long as it’s processed domestically. That feels absurd to me – but it’s true. 

Rest assured, all of Good Chop’s meat and seafood is from U.S. farms and fisheries.

I also really like how they put an emphasis on sourcing locally. They’re basically an online butcher that gets their products from farms across America — no imports from other countries. It’s pretty cool that I can support a independent rancher all from the comfort of my own home.

The Easiest Way to Get High-Quality Meat to Your Doorstep

So how does it work?

Ordering is pretty seamless:

  1. Pick either a Medium, Large or Extra Large plan. Since I’m a single guy I went with the Medium box. It’s definitely enough to have at least a serving of meat every day. The Large box would be best for families. The plans start at $149 per month, which can come out to $3.74 per portion depending on the cuts you select — that’s a pretty great deal for high-quality meat.
  1. Next, the fun part, choosing your cuts. I like to have a wide variety of proteins, so I chose ground beef, boneless ribeye steaks, chicken wings (air fryer for the win), bacon, scallops, and some shrimp.
  1. Finally, the insulated box gets shipped within a few days. It quite literally showed up right on my doorstep. All of the food is flash-frozen at peak freshness which I really appreciate. Oftentimes I can’t really tell how fresh a steak is at the grocery store, so having frozen meat is reassuring.

The nice thing about the Good Chop subscription is that there’s no commitment — you can switch between plans, you can change which meats you want, etc. They make it really low stress.

Preparation, Cooking, & Taste Test

Once I received the box, I immediately threw everything in the freezer. Beware: the box came with a lot of meat and it barely all fit into my freezer. Not great if you have limited space.

I kept everything frozen until the day before I wanted to eat it. I recommend simply moving it to the refrigerator as it’s the safest way to thaw it out.

I’m a simple guy, so I typically make food in the easiest way possible. If you’re like me, here’s a quick how-to guide on best methods for each type of protein:

  • Beef: Always cook in the skillet — salt, pepper, and butter is all you need!
  • Bacon: Oven works best for consistency
  • Seafood: Salmon and shrimp in oven, scallops in skillet
  • Chicken: Chicken wings in oven or air fryer, breasts in oven or skillet

I never use the grill, but of course, that’s great too for each of these!

I called up some friends and had them over for a protein feast. We prepared the ribeyes in a cast iron, bacon in the oven, and the seafood in a skillet.

The ribeyes were the most tender cuts of meat I’ve had in my life. I like my steak cooked a little more than rare, and these cuts were rich and savory. The bacon was thick and rich. And the chicken was tender and actually had a taste (unlike most of the bland stuff you grab).

And while I’m not crazy about seafood in general, Good Chop’s may convince me to make the switch. The scallops developed a beautiful crust and the shrimp wasn’t too stretchy, which has turned me off to shrimp in the past. If I was more of a grillmaster, I would’ve used that to cook it for an even better finish.

I definitely noticed the difference in the grocery store meat vs. Good Chop’s. The taste was much better and the marbling was more steakhouse-like. 

Final Thoughts

I’m so glad I came across Good Chop. I’m tired of spending a lot on sub-par meat from the grocery store, and this is a solid alternative.

The ribs were incredibly juicy (fell right off the bone) and the ribeyes were tender and flavorful! Credit: Joe Niehaus

The price point is fair, delivery is convenient, the actual meat tastes fantastic, and if I ever need to pause or cancel, the Good Chop website makes it easy to change my subscription.

If you’re looking to step-up your protein game and move towards a better alternative, you’ll definitely want to check out Good Chop.
